Abstract

This study utilized beruas laut plant (Scaevola taccada) as a research material. The purpose of this study was to determine the antioxidant activity of S. taccada crude extract, especially on leaves and fruit extract. The highest levels of protein was found in the Scaevola taccada leaf (8.806%), the highest fat was found in the leaf (1.822%), the highest water was found in leaf (11.376%), the highest ash content was found in the leaf (14,78%) and the highest carbohydrates content was found in fruit (82.52%). Phytochemical analysis detected flavonoids, tannins, and steroid in the (S. taccada). Antioxidant analysis obtained IC50 values of chloroform leaf extract was 0.1944, methanol leaf extract was 0.1034, chloroform fruit extract was 0.464, and IC50 values of methanol fruit extract was 0.653.
